Ruiz Jr, who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles, was joined by WBC king Deontay Wilder for Saturday's fight between Keith Thurman vs. Manny Pacquiao .

He posed for a picture with the undefeated American and captioned it: "2 Champions holding all the belts in heavyweight boxing."

A Twitter user then mentioned Fury's lineal championship. "What about the invisible belt fury has."

To which he replied: "I can't forget his imaginary belt," Ruiz Jr wrote accompanied with a hand on face emoji.

Despite Fury's hiatus from boxing between 2015 to 2018, he remains the lineal champion following his famous victory against Wladimir Klitschko, but his rivals fail to recognise it.

Ruiz Jr and Fury have traded insults over each other in recent weeks.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' called him a "lil fat f***er" in a brutal rant.

"Lil fat f***er! So, if he [Andy Ruiz Jr] wants a slap too, he can have one too," he said to Michelle Joy Phelps on Behind The Gloves.

"Andy Ruiz if you want a slap, you can have one in all. Cause I ain't bothered about you fatso.

"I'll hit him in the body make him spew marshmallows for a month," he added.

It's not the first time he's thrown shade at Ruiz Jr. The 28-0-1 fighter called the Mexican-American a "bum" despite dethroning Anthony Joshua.

The unified champion responded by saying: "Yeah, Andy Ruiz is a bum, everyone's a bum. I'm still a fan of the guy. I don't know if people want me to talk bad about him, but that's not the type of guy that I am.

"As long as he does what he has to do, I salute Tyson Fury. And Wilder too you know because it takes a lot for us big guys risking our lives inside the ring to take care of our families.

"I'm not the type of guy to talk outside of the ring. But inside the ring, I'll be doing all the talking for sure."

Meanwhile, Ruiz Jr will rematch Anthony Joshua before the end of the year while Fury's set to return to action in October, after stopping Tom Schwarz on his Las Vegas debut in June.
